THE RIVALS150: Class of 2014 - Class of 2015
To help round out their 2014 recruiting class, Vanderbilt coaches were hoping to find one more lengthy, wing athlete. They got him on Tuesday.
After spending the past few days visiting officially with Kevin Stallings and his staff, 6-foot-6 small forward Jeff Roberson from Houston (Texas) Kincaid is a Commodore.
"I felt really comfortable with the coaching staff," Roberson told Rivals.com. "I felt they would help develop me on the court and look after me off the court.
"I felt really comfortable with the guys too. They are great group and the academics really drew me in to Vanderbilt."
With very good wing size and good athleticism, Roberson plays a mature game. He doesn't force things too much offensively, shares the ball and is an outstanding defender.
"They could have a stretched out offense and open the floor," said Roberson. "I feel I can help break down the defense and help create for other guys. Defensively, I can really break down and help out there."
Roberson joins a strong perimeter group that already includes four-star wings Wade Baldwin and Matthew Fisher-Davis and Rivals150 point guard Riley LaChance.
"It's a relief to commit because it is always in the back of your mind until it's done," said Roberson. "It feels good to know I'm going to a good school. Fans will get a hard worker who will do whatever it takes to win. I want to win at all cost and will do whatever it takes to make that happen."
